Tech Innovations Boost Homegate’s Successful Branding Campaign


Homegate recently embarked on a cutting-edge tech-driven branding campaign that has yielded impressive results. What set this campaign apart was the use of AI-generated images through Midjourney, an AI-generator tool, in combination with internal expert inputs.

Revolutionizing Real Estate Marketing

During the inception of the AI-driven branding campaign, the B2C Marketing Team at SMG Real Estate, led by Julia Forjan, drew inspiration from visual references and conducted extensive research for the prompts. The focus was on diverse housing solutions that catered to individual preferences, ensuring resonance with the target audience in Zurich and beyond. Creative ideas were brainstormed to effectively convey the concept visually.

Carefully crafted prompts for AI-powered images encapsulated Homegate’s brand identity and the campaign’s theme. Relevant visual references, architectural inspirations, and lifestyle depictions guided Midjourney’s AI algorithms, aligning with the team’s creative vision.

The team considered disclosing the AI-generated nature of the images but opted against it. Prioritizing familiarity and connection, the visuals aimed to evoke positive emotions and associations with Homegate’s brand. By avoiding explicit mentions of AI, they aimed to present clear, relatable visuals, forging an authentic and inviting connection with the audience.

From Prompt to Perfect: AI-Driven Branding Campaign

Challenges and Opportunites: Transforming Visual Storytelling

In the fast-paced marketing world, AI stands as a game-changer, liberating creativity from constraints. This cutting-edge technology enables us to bring any idea to life without boundaries. With AI’s efficiency, physical photoshoots aren’t needed for every campaign, saving time and resources. Teams can have more freedom and deliver campaigns more promptly. Custom imagery elevates individuality, ensuring a unique brand identity that connects authentically with the audience. Another upside is the swift response to trends; AI keeps campaigns relevant and engaging, adding agility to our storytelling.

Balancing Innovation with Control

As we embrace AI’s benefits, we acknowledge challenges that demand thoughtful consideration. While AI grants limitless creative options, achieving 100% resolution and format match remains a work in progress. Maintaining brand consistency requires meticulous attention to detail as AI introduces an element of surprise. Ensuring realism in depictions of humans and animals demands scrutiny. Amidst AI’s evolution, copywriting and licensing regulations require careful adherence for integrity and legal compliance. Embracing these challenges, we blend the best of AI’s innovation with our professional expertise. The human touch remains indispensable.

The Future of the AI-Driven Branding Campaign: AI and Human Ingenuity
